I know what you mean about Kubuntu being just a little too much
trouble. This issue is one of the few remaining little bugs that
Ubuntu users don't have to deal with. Until Hardy, I was using KDE on
Ubuntu for little reasons like this, there were morre back then.

The solution is to have Mozilla / Canonical form the same Firefox /
Gnome integration with Firefox / KDE. I will go through the bugs
mentioned earlier in this thread and comment where necessary.


By the way, could you please send to me a screenshot of the Open With
dialog in Firefox, showing the list of applications when you encounter
an unknown file type? Send it to my private mail as I do not think
that the list accepts attachments. Thanks.
